Randwick Race 7: Girvan Waugh Randwick Guineas 1600m

04/03/2016: Star colt Press Statement made an emphatic return to racing at his first start since winning the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas when he trounced rivals in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill 2 weeks ago. That win took his career total to a compelling 6 wins and a 2nd from 8 race starts. He's won 2nd up in the past and there's nothing new here that will trouble this gun colt. Simply wins with even luck. Stay With Me has won at Group 1 level over this distance in the Caulfield Thousand Guineas and looks to be nearing peak after 2 runs back. Strong Quinella claims for sure. Tulsa ran a terrific race at Flemington last time out when close up 3rd at Group 2 level behind Tivaci. Came from well back on that occasion so the step up to the mile here might suit. Can do things wrong but still rates highly on last effort. Montaigne did well when rising from a BM78 to Group 2 level last time when 3rd behind Press Statement. Looks to have plenty of potential and finishes his races off strongly. Definite place claims. Le Romain was runner up to Press Statement in the Hobartville Stakes and has performed well in both starts this track, a bit of a query at the 1600m but shouldn't be far off them at the end.

PACE COMMENTS No designated front runner in this event and only two other runners with known early tactical speed. Although Press Statement looks to have a mortgage on the race, the speed maps here won't do Montaigne and the other backmarkers any favours whatsoever. Although drawn wide, raging favourite Press Statement should push forward early and look to drop in behind the two listed pace runners and from there on receive a nice passage and be too good at the business end. Pace assessment is moderate.
